Giroud has surgery on broken leg - Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud will be out for at least three months after having surgery on a broken leg. Chicago's Little League champs return as heroes (Yahoo Sports) - The ballpark gleams, exactly as the home of the Little League World Series national championship team should. Free of graffiti and absent so much as a kid's initials carved in the grandstand benches, Jackie Robinson Park is outfitted with a digital scoreboard and mechanical pitching machines. It sits in a tidy neighborhood of brick one-story homes and manicured lawns on Chicago's South Side. While the words ''South Side'' are often shorthand beyond Chicago for gangs, shootings and poverty, the people who live here see a more nuanced picture. Chambers poised for England call - Arsenal's Calum Chambers is set to be one of several new additions to Roy Hodgson's England squad on Thursday. Boxer Jermain Taylor out on bond after shooting (Yahoo Sports) - Boxer Jermain Taylor was freed on $25,000 bond Wednesday after police detained the former middleweight champion in the shooting of his cousin at Taylor's suburban Little Rock home. Taylor appeared via video from the Pulaski County jail for his initial court appearance Wednesday. Taylor faces preliminary charges of domestic battery and aggravated assault in the late Tuesday shooting of Tyrone Hinton. His attorney, Allison Allred of North Little Rock, didn't immediately return an Associated Press call for comment. Bengals LB Burfict signs 3-year extension (Yahoo Sports) - Bengals Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict signed a three-year extension on Wednesday that runs through the 2017 season and will pay him a maximum of $20.05 million. Burfict is entering the final year on his original deal that will pay him a salary of $570,000. Burfict is the leader of a defense that finished third in the NFL last season in yards allowed. ''It's great to have this deal done and know I'm going to be here beyond this season,'' Burfict said. Cook angry about Swann's criticism - England captain Alastair Cook reacts to Graeme Swann's criticism of his one-day form by calling him a "so-called friend". Aston Villa 0-1 Leyton Orient - Aston Villa suffer a shock exit from the League Cup as Romain Vincelot's header gives Leyton Orient a dramatic win. Burton Albion 1-0 QPR - Adam McGurk's free-kick knocks QPR out of the League Cup and sends Burton Albion into round three. Arsenal 1-0 Besiktas - Clippers sign Doc Rivers to 5-year extension (Yahoo Sports) - Doc Rivers is staying with the Los Angeles Clippers for another five years. In Steve Ballmer's first big move since taking over as the new owner, he gave Rivers a contract extension through the 2018-19 season. Rivers was a stabilizing force for the franchise during the upheaval created by former owner Donald Sterling's racist remarks that led to his ouster after 33 years of ownership. ''Not only is Doc one of the best coaches and executives in the game, but he continually embodies the hardcore, committed and resilient character and winning culture that the Clippers represent,'' Ballmer said, repeating the ''hardcore'' theme he uttered during last week's fan rally.

Degenkolb wins successive Vuelta stages, Matthews retains lead (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: August 27, 2014, 6:39 pm]
German John Degenkolb sprinted to his second successive victory on the fifth stage of The Tour of Spain, a 180km ride from Priego do Cordoba to Ronda, while Australian Michael Matthews retained the overall leader's red jersey. Giant-Shimano's Degenkolb, 25, crossed the line marginally clear of irate Frenchman Nacer Bouhanni in second, who believed the German blocked his passage during the sprint, and Dutchman Moreno Hofland in third. Matthews finished safely inside the lead group to extend his lead to 13 seconds over Colombian Nairo Quintana, and 20 seconds over Spain's Alejandro Valverde, both of whom finished in the pack. As the sprint finish intensified Bouhanni became boxed in between Degenkolb and the barriers and was unable to find the room to launch his final attack.
